Apollo 4 on column of fire

A query about ReiserFS

ReiserFS is described on the relevant page of the Gentoo Handbook as not being as well maintained as the other filesystem choices. It’s not as if this weren’t to be expected, what with the guy it’s named after being a murderer and exceeded in unpopularity only by Scott Peterson and Osama bin Laden.

Has it occurred to anyone to change the name of the filesystem?

I was using Posix ACLs for something!

Ach, well, I’ll devise a different arrangement; indeed, my setup was too cautious in the first place.

Update: A second thought – rebuild the kernel with ACL support this time! :)
